Simulation Experiments with Bio-Inspired Algorithms for Odor Source Localization in Laminar Wind Flow

We compare three bio-inspired odor source localization algorithm (casting, surge-spiral and surge-cast) for environments with a main wind flow in simulation. The wind flow is laminar and the simulation setup similar to the setup in the wind tunnel in which we have carried out similar experiments with real robots. The algorithms are compared in terms of success rate and distance overhead when tracking the plume up to the source. We conclude that the algorithms based on upwind surge yield significantly better performance than pure casting.
